The conference entitled ”Aiming for a Safe Chemical Environment: New Frontiers in the Comprehension of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals Exposure, Effects and Specific Risk Assessment Requirements” took place in Les Diablerets, June 3-8, 2018. It was the 11th Gordon Research Conference on Environmental Endocrine Disruptors. EDC-MixRisk was represented in the meeting by Prof. Carl-Gustaf Bornehag from […]

To express concern and raise awareness on hazardous chemical mixtures and combined exposure, the Coordinators and representatives of several EC funded research projects, EDC-MixRisk, EuroMix, EU-ToxRisk, HBM4EU, SOLUTIONS, have sent a position paper (17 April 2018) to Director‐Generals of DG Environment, DG Research and Innovation and DG Health and Food Safety. The position paper entitled […]

Five EC funded H2020 and FP7 research projects i.e. EDC-MixRisk, EuroMix, EU-ToxRisk, HBM4EU and SOLUTIONS, are working together to address different aspects of the impacts of mixtures on human health and the environment, including also research activities at the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC). Through this collaboration, synergies, knowledge […]

European Institute of Oncology, IEO, in Milan, and Prof. Giuseppe Testa’s group is one of the EDC-MixRisk partners working at the nexus of interdisciplinary collaboration. Dr. Testa’s group has expertise in molecular biology, bioinformatics and social science. Within the framework of the EDC-MixRisk project, they work together to produce cutting edge-understanding of the adverse neurodevelopmental […]

Meet our EDC-MixRisk scientists working behind the scenes and learn more about their work. This time in line is Olle Söder who is Professor of Pediatrics and Head of Department of Women’s and Children’s Health, and of the pediatric endocrinology reproductive research unit, located at the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital, Karolinska Institutet & University Hospital, […]

Barbara Demeneix, Professor at the French National Museum of Natural History, is an internationally recognized expert on thyroid function and endocrine disruption. She is the work package leader of WP4 on identification of molecular initiating events in EDC-MixRisk project. Recently, she was interviewed for European Chemicals Agency’s newsletter on how chemicals can result in autism […]

The research performed in EDC-MixRisk helps to expand our knowledge on mixtures of endocrine disrupting chemicals. Meet our EDC-MixRisk scientists and hear their story on what they are doing and why it matters. This time in line is Carl-Gustaf Bornehag who is professor in Public Health Sciences and head of Public Health Sciences at Karlstad […]
